Both of the above NARS duo eye shadows I received in various beauty boxes. I like NARS as a brand and I feel their products are always great quality. So I was excited to see these products included within my monthly beauty box.
Although, I must admit on first glance the shades aren’t what I would usually go for. I prefer nude tones/browns as if I’m honest, as I don’t think I could pull off bold, bright eye looks! (My eye shadows skills aren’t the most advanced, ha!)
However once swatched the shades seem a lot cooler and less ‘in your face’ which may or may not be a good thing depending on what you prefer.
The above palette is my favourite of the two eye shadow palettes. This palette is named ‘underworld’. Both shades in this palette are very grey toned. They look very similar when swatched next to one another which I didn’t expect as they look so different in the palette. I much prefer the shades once swatched/applied.
I also found them highly pigmented which is always a great bonus.
BUT I would say that if you were buying this for the blue shade you would possibly be disappointed as, as you can see, the blue is much more subdued when applied. So this palette probably isn’t the best for bold eye shadow lovers.
Onto the second of the two eye shadow palettes. This palette is named ‘star sailor’. Out of the two shades I feel I will get the most use out of the brown shade as it is a standard go to eye shadow colour for me. However the yellow toned shade is not for me. As I am very pale I think this shade is one to avoid as I feel it will wash me out.
The yellow toned shade may make a good base shadow. I will have to experiment with it to see if I can find a look that I like using this shade.
Overall, I like these products and I would buy different shades of this products. (Perhaps more ‘me’ shades next time though!)
